Sign up for President's Cup (Cancelled for 2019 and 2020 seasons)
JoAnn Deasy is chairing the competition and will assign flights. But all members can play a Match on that June 26 playday without committing to being in the President's Cup. President Cup flights are determined using the June 15 Handicap Index report; each match will use the current Course Handicap for that day of match play.
As a competitor of the President's Cup you will play 4 matches; you and your competitor make tee times and hand in your cards (see bulletin board by Pro Shop). We try to have openings for match play so you don't have to wait 2 weeks to reserve a tee time - check with the Pro Shop for any openings. You have until Sept 11 to complete your matches and you must play to gain points.
NOTE: we strongly recommend that the 2 players of any match submit only ONE card to the Pro Shop and retain the OTHER. We have lost cards occasionally, so please retain a card until you have confirmed that the posted score online and on the bulletin board is correct!
2019 President's Cup - Match Play
Each flight will consist of 5 players by Handicap Index.
Each player in each flight will play 4 matches.
All matches must be completed by date given above (1 week prior to the Awards Luncheon) and matches may be scheduled at any time up to and including date [above].
It is your responsibility to set up matches with each player in your flight
The tournament is based on a point system. The winner of the President's Cup trophy will be the player who accumulates the highest number of points regardless of flight.
Each hole on the scorecard is worth 1 point. If a tie occurs on any given hole, then the point is halved (1/2 or .5). Each match is worth a total of 18 points.
Even if you lose a match by a few points, this does not mean you will lose in your flight. You may still be ahead of all other players in total points earned at the conclusion of the tournament.
If you enter the tournament, you are making a commitment to play FOUR matches. If you cannot fulfill this commitment, please do not sign up for President's Cup.
Check your current Course Handicap and pop the card according to the difference in handicaps between competitors. The lower handicapper will score gross only (no pops). The higher handicapper will receive the number of "pops" equal to the difference between her current handicap and her opponent's. We do not cap the handicaps in match play.
Flight winners will consist of first and second place in each flight.
Since each flight consists of 5 players, not everyone who signs up late will be entered into the tournament. And not everyone who plays on opening day will be playing an opponent in their President's Cup flight.
Once the tournament has started, any disputes, cancellations, or other unusual circumstances pertaining to it will be settle by the TDWGC Board and the President's Cup Chair.
USGA rules governing Match Play will apply and a copy of those rules will be issued on the "match play" playday. For tournament players not competing in an "official" President's Cup match on "match play" playday, the rules will be distributed prior to their first match.
